Just 1,500 Tweets? … Not really

Captura de pantalla 2014-05-22 a la(s) 22.50.27   When you search a keyword in followthehashtag for the first time, you will probably get a maximum of 1,500 tweets with a 7 day limit. This happens because Twitter API limits the amount of info that we can receive. Twitter only gives us

  • In any case a maximum of 1,500 Tweets
  • Tweets emitted at most seven days ago

So, how can you get more than 1,500 tweets?

We can look into the past with historical data recover feature, and we can track and store all new tweets.
